Sticky Wax!

At last Friday’s art reception and in the Georgetown clinic this week we have been enjoying a beautiful and simple activity–decorating candles with thin sheets of colorful decorating beeswax. It is simple, fun, and beautiful. The wax comes in beautiful thin sheets. It can be cut with scissors and applied to an existing candle, using only the warmth of your hand to make it stick. It seems that the winter holidays from many faith traditions  involve lighting candles–maybe as the nights grow longer and the daylight hours shorter we crave the symbolic warmth and light of candles.  Here are a few examples of the ones we made in the clinic this week. Enjoy!
